Hello Girlies and Fashionistos,
Today I decided to stir the pot just a little and invite writers to come into I.C. and talk about their passions. A great friend of I.C. is Janie Bergamasco, an attache of complete style (especially accessories) this girl really knows how to snap it out from all sides. Enjoy the post while I stir up a Strawberry Mojito.

The first image is the Louis Vuitton neverfull bag. I just got one for Christmas and it’s my go-to, everyday bag. It can open up into a fuller tote or the strings can be pulled in to make a city bag. And, either way, the leather strings at the side are beautiful! Open, they add interest, and closed, they make a beautiful silhouette for a handbag. And, of course, Louis Vuitton matches everything!
The second is the Chloé Marcie bag. Such a beautiful shape and the leather working and craftsmanship is to-die-for- it comes in lots of colors, mine being the neutral above or the sultry cognac color. The handles are also fabulous- braided leather!– with tassle detail, and a feminine shape to boot.
Not one to shy away from labels, I love the Gucci Jockey handbag. It incorporates the classic horsebit detail at the sides, with ruched fabric adding interest. It comes in three sizes, and the medium is best for day-to-day. It is similar to Gucci’s 85th anniversary hobo, but a little bit more subtle.
Of course, the Chanel jumbo Caviar handbag is a classic, iconic, and instantly recognizable piece that will be a supplement to your wardrobe for years to come. Black is probably the safest bet for such an investment, but if you have the means, then fun colors would always add instant pop and class to any outfit.
Rebecca Minkoff is a designer that has taken off in recent years with many Hollywood starlets carrying her wares, and the Morning After bag has been one of the most popular. A cute satchel, it’s perfect for a day trip or a night out. The beautiful woven leather on this style takes my breath away.
Bulga’s Pudding handbag has wonderful stitching on the flap at the top, and the leather tassels add more to the classic shape. The round rings add a bit of drama, while it is also very functional and easy to use.
For a statement, this Christian Louboutin handbag is fabulous! It reminds me of Dita Von Teese’s outfits of choice- unique, classy, and sure to get your attention! It comes in red and black, but the red would be oh so perfect for a girl who wants dish around town.
So, there you have it, my favorite handbags of all time. Remember, it’s the accessories that make the outfit! Choose wisely!
